Busser and Dishwasher

About Us
Dandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in San Francisco’s Mission District. We make chocolate from only two ingredients, cocoa beans and cane sugar, and travel to origins as often as we can to build good, trusting relationships with the producers who grow and ferment our beans. We are currently seeking a dishwasher and busser for our café, salon, and production kitchen on 16th Street as we get ready for our grand opening. At Dandelion, our dishwasher is as important to our daily success as our chocolate makers and baristas. 

About You
You are proactive and willing to lend a hand to anyone on the team. When you arrive in the morning, you notice that the boxes from the latest FedEx delivery are blocking the front door. You move them to a safer place where they are out of the way so that they are out of the way and no longer a safety hazard. Next, you notice that someone spilled their hot chocolate in the cafe so without missing a beat, you grab a mop and clean up the spill while keeping in mind that the floor is slippery and putting out a “caution” sign until it’s dry. You always make sure that dirty dishes are cleared quickly, that the bus bins are cleared regularly, and that both the baristas and servers have ample dishware and polished water glasses and utensils. We’ll be launching our brand-new 16th Street Factory soon, and we are looking for bussers/dishwashers to join our opening team. The starting rate is $15/hour plus tips.
